New Music Friday: 1/20
Listen to our favorite new tracks from this week, featuring some of our favorite artists like Maggie Rogers and Rationale.
Maggie Rogers- "On + Off"
Maggie Rogers released her third single earlier this week, in the midst of her first tour ever. The new tune "On + Off' features her signature whimsical production style and sweeping vocals. The song comes from Rogers's upcoming EP Now That The Light Is Fading, set to be released on February 17th.
After releasing "Prodigal Son" and "Vessels" at the end of 2016, Rationale has kicked off 2017 with the third track off his Vessels EP, "Reciprocate." Co-written with Grades, the dynamic tune possesses a hypnotic melody and showcases Rationale's vast vocal range. "Reciprocate" further solidifies Rationale's unique sound and immense talent as a producer, songwriter, and vocalist. We're sure that his upcoming debut will not disappoint his growing fan base.
Kevin Garrett- "Stranglehold"
In advance of his upcoming US tour, Kevin Garrett gifted us new tune "Stranglehold" earlier this week. Soft and soulful, the new track stays true to Kevin's style, while pushing to boundaries on the production side. Make sure you grab your tickets to see Kevin on tour next month-- he confirmed he'll be playing this one on the road.
MUNA- "Crying on the Bathroom Floor"
Female trio MUNA's latest single "Crying on the Bathroom Floor" comes two weeks before the release of their debut album About U. The new track starts off with thick 80's-influenced synthesizers and delicate vocals from lead singer Katie Gavin. True to MUNA-form, the song delivers a pop exterior that will make you want to dance, while also containing thoughtful lyrics with a message.
Singer-songwriter COTE dropped a new track "Cruel" earlier this week. Perfect for a Sunday afternoon, the track starts off soft with COTE's soothing vocal style, building up with the chorus. Sonically, the song branches out from COTE's first three singles, proving the versatility of this newcomer.
